Halloween 2020 Halloween Pumpkin

Rare Halloween 'Blue Moon' is a spooky treat for the entire world

In this Halloween weekend horoscope for Oct. 30 - Nov. 1, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Not only is it Scorpio season (aka Spooky Season), it's that time of year when we're called to delve into the shadows and celebrate the power of mystery, seduction, and our inner witch, but this year we've also got an electrifying Full Moon in Taurus happening on Halloween that's sure to deliver the tricks and the treats. The Moon slips into Taurus late Friday afternoon bringing our focus to our comfort and security. Come Saturday, the Moon joins forces with surprising and unconventional Uranus in Taurus, meanwhile full moons are a time when things that are hidden come to light. We should expect this full moon to highlight the scary things that we need to overcome or release in order to move forward.

Luckily, as both Taurus and Scorpio are zodiac signs associated with determination and perseverance, we're encouraged to call on the power of these signs to defeat any ghouls, goblins, or "scaries" we encounter. By Sunday, the energy calms down significantly as the Taurus Moon meets up with soothing Neptune in Pisces and planets in grounded Capricorn.

Skywatchers, ghouls and (especially) werewolves take note: The moon will be full this Halloween night across the entire United States. This is a truly special confluence of spookiness; a Halloween full moon visible for all time zones on Earth hasn't happened since 1944, according to the Farmers' Almanac. But wait, there's more: The Oct. 31 full moon also happens to be a " blue moon," a designation for the second full moon to occur in a single calendar month. Blue moons are relatively rare as well, occurring on average just once every 2.5 years or so.

The current definition of "blue moon" is actually a misinterpretation of the original one, by the way. "But in 1946, amateur astronomer and frequent contributor to Sky & Telescope James Hugh Pruett (1886–1955) incorrectly interpreted the Almanac's description, and the second-full-moon-in-one-month usage was born," Sky & Telescope wrote in an explainer this week. And in case you were wondering — "blue moon" has nothing to do with color. The Harvest Moon is the one that falls closest to the Northern Hemisphere autumnal equinox, which occurred this year on Sept. And one last thing: The Halloween full moon this year also qualifies as a "micro-moon" or "minimoon," because it will occur when the moon is close to its farthest point from Earth in its elliptical orbit.

Perhaps it's needless to bring up at this point, but can we please acknowledge that this could've been the best Halloween of the decade, especially for college kids (if you're into partying or whatever …)? Who knows, maybe we'll discover a vaccine for COVID-19: That'd definitely make this Halloween one for the decade — heck, the century. But the odds of that happening are very slim to none, so instead, we will sulk about why this Halloween would have been really awesome if we were living outside of the reality of a pandemic. This is perhaps the most convincing reason why Halloween would have been especially rad this year, and this reason is probably true for people of all ages. Hmm, well, maybe Halloween 2027 will make up for any missed opportunities this year. Not only is Halloween on a Saturday this year, but it falls on the second full moon of October — it's a blue moon. A full moon typically stirs some energies around, and with it being on one of the spookiest days of the year, the possibilities for something unexpected to happen are endless. The fact that we cannot celebrate Halloween to our full capacity doesn't change that it is still on a full and blue moon, so some freaky stuff could definitely still go down. Our chances of experiencing something outlandish are simply lower. Still, we can all take this Saturday to find the time to go outside and howl at the moon. On Oct. 31 this year, you're in for a particularly spiritual evening, especially if you're one of the zodiac signs who will have the best full moon on Halloween 2020. As if 2020 couldn't get any weirder, there's a full moon slated to take place on Oct. 31 at 10:49 a.m. ET. Well, this year, the cosmos are the ones shouting "boo!" in your face, because this full moon forms an exact conjunction with unpredictable and erratic Uranus. Taurus: You're Getting To Know Yourself Much Better You're the last zodiac sign who would surprise everyone, right? If you've been feeling as though you're stagnant in your creative process or struggling to find inspiration, this full moon might just be your golden ticket. Tomorrow, on 31 October, 2020, a rare lunar phenomenon - termed "Blue Moon" will take place, which will be visible in the night sky from around 8.19 pm. This time the Blue Moon is coinciding with Halloween, which sounds spookier, isn't it? October has two full Moons this year out of which the second moon is usually anointed as Blue Moon. A Blue Moon is a second full moon in a calendar month. The last time such a phenomena was seen on Halloween was back in 1944 and as per NASA the next Halloween Blue Moon will occur in 2039. Halloween comes every year, but this year the phrase 'once in a blue moon' is aptly suited. "When there are two full moons in a calendar month, the second full moon is called the Blue Moon," he added. After about 30 months there will be one extra full moon in the year, Paranjpaye said. N Rathnashree, the director of Nehru Planetarium, Delhi said the term Blue Moon is a calendrical term. "It is not too common to have a Blue Moon in a month of 30 days," she said. The last Blue Moon in a month with 30 days was on June 30, 2007 and the next one will be on September 30, 2050, Paranjpaye said. There were two Blue Moons in 2018. The first one was on January 31 and the second Blue Moon followed on March 31. The next Blue Moon will be on August 31, 2023, he added.
